Laura and Nick are married!!!!

Dec 8, 2009

Laura & Nick had a fabulous New England clambake themed wedding at Kempenaar’s Clambake Club back in August. Lots of love, friendship and GREAT food! The public clambake is a tradition for my family so it was nice to revisit the venue to document another family’s enjoyment there. KCC is a big tradition with Nick’s family, so it was a familiar setting for his side.

Here is what Laura said when she saw her photos:

You are truly amazing! These pictures are exactly what I wanted! I relived each moment of the entire day through your eyes but in some sense my eyes too! You have a true talent, the gift of preserving a memory timelessly. I know you understand mean and this may seem corny and trivial but sometime watch the movie Tinker Bell and think my 5 year old daughter and I… I have already gave your name to another bride and I will continue to highly recommend you as it is worth every penny… and in some way invaluable.
Thanks with all my heart!

Moment #2: Laura’s mom & sister walking her leave….

While Laura was walking down the stairs in the previous picture, I swung the camera up to the top of the stairs to capture this nice moment of Laura’s mom & sister. See? 1 photographer can get multiple moments! 🙂

Laura’s sister exchanging a glance at her parents in the front row from her maid-of-honor seat at the altar…

Laura’s bouquet was covered with a piece of her mom’s wedding dress.

The kids were being so patient!

A new family!

We had such beautiful weather….72 degrees and no humidity in the middle of August! Amazing. And a little cloud diffusion….a photographer favorite.

A mother-daughter talk:

No pictures, please…

A quick bride & groom portrait at KCC

Faith Dugan Hardware: So this was a unique idea I’ve never seen before. There was a box of holes that was about 3×4 feet wide. Next to the box, guests could fill out messages to the couple, roll up the colored paper, and slide it into the box. Laura & Nick read 1 message every day after they returned from their honeymoon. Such a fun idea! So of course, I incorporated the color and the rolled up paper in my ring-art for them! 🙂

No vendor chicken dinner here!!!!! Mhmmmm hmm! Thanks for the great meal, Laura. It’s much appreciated!

    Faith, I love the emotions and little moments that you are able to capture. With every post I look at I get more excited for you to photograph our wedding! I think I’m currently 1000% excited!
